Mr. GRAYDON:

Yes.
Mr. ST. LAURENT: Our troops were there when the surrender occurred, and we could not fly them out overnight. We immediately started to demobilize our forces and to remove them just as expeditiously as transportation conditions permitted. When we had succeeded in removing our troops from the area, we appointed a military liaison to the government constituted by the four allied commanders, as I stated in my previous remarks.
